Mystery Case Files: 13th Skull
1 February 2011
Excerpt: The latest "casual" game arrives on the PC in the next instalment of the Mystery Case Files, the 13th Skull. Even though the core of 13th Skull is a traditional hidden object game where you need to find certain objects and sometimes link them together, the inclusion of a decent story and mini-games transcend the game from dull point and click to something rather unique and interesting.
Conclusion: Overall, Mystery Case Files: 13th Skull is an impressive mélange of solid storytelling, interesting gameplay and superlative production quality, and strives proactively to blur the line even more between casual and traditional adventure games. It drags at times with obvious contrivances meant to protract game time – the repetitive chores grate on the nerves and the exhausting backtracking without the benefit of a navigable map is inexcusable.
